photopage seedheads

Black and white photograph of a railway yard in the industrial north of England in the late 1970s.
This photograph of the dried seed heads of a poppy plant was taken in 2020.  The colours are delicate watercolour shades of green and yellow and purple. The texture of the capsules is papery and fragile. The curving stem, which anticipates the swell of the capsules, is gentle and elegant.
